«It is necessary to gradually expand the geography of consular offices abroad and introduce modern information technologies. Real work has begun in this direction. For example, a consulate was opened in Novosibirsk city this year,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov added.

The President urged ambassadors to work closely with public associations and compatriots’ organizations abroad.

I set the task to raise the work on protection of the rights of our citizens abroad and providing them with specific assistance to the highest level.

The world community must recognize us as a country that can take care of its citizens and ensure their safety in all circumstances,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov reminded.
